"REVEALING THE LOVE OF GOD IN CHRIST"
Covenant

  Having been led, as we believe, by the spirit of God to receive Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior, and on the profession of our faith, having been baptized in the name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, we do now, in the presence of God, angels, and this assembly, most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another, as one body in Christ. We will live our lives in the belief that God created our world and all who live in it. We will turn away from our tendency to abuse our selves, other persons, and our world. We will share with others the good news that God in Jesus Christ loves them and died for them and the whole world. We will encourage persons everywhere to experience the love of Christ and to make public profession of what it means for them. We will rejoice with the people of God in public acts of worship and in private moments of meditation. We will join with others to both challenge and inspire society to the end that our attitudes and actions will reveal a loving community. We will use our possessions and energies to show God's love to people in need.
